But if you wanted to turn a case into a JBOD case, you can get something like this: http://www.servethehome.com/supermic...sis-made-easy/

They have breakout cables to connect non-Supermicro power buttons and LEDs too.
this is the route I think I will take. I'm just trying to find a cheaper dummie case that has backplanes. I don't want to run sata wires.

This would be perfect except I question if using sata plugs and power cables with splitters is worth the cost savings?

Is there something like a NORCO 4020 or 4224 that's value oriented? I like the idea of SAS8087 and backplanes to make things easy.

EDIT:


I guess it's this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811219024

On second thought I'm thinking I should just wait for a 15% off coupon at newegg and free shipping and bit the bullet and get a second 4220.
